, and increasing l tempo is the role that technology played. i mean, obviously we have seen the development of syndromes, we have seen the application of super computers. one of the things you did is move the intelligence analysts tout to the base there. and integrated everything upfront. can you talk about that a little bit the role that technology played. >> yeah. there's several things in technology that changed the fight. one is obvious it was predators. it wasn't drone strikes. it was drone surveillance. because you put a surveillance that gives you full motion video, anywhere if our force to include the guys on the ground could watch what the predator is watching in real-time video. the real effect of that is several. one, it used to take 120 people to raid a target when only twenty were going inside. it takes 100 to secure it outside make sure you don't get people reinforcing or whatnot. if you can do it from the air you only send twenty. now, the other hundred can hit five other targets. we could hit six targets in the time we're hitting one. and you know more. you can put drones ov

that change and increasing the tempo is the role that technology played. i mean, obviously, we've seen the development of drones, we've seen the application of supercomputers. of one of the things that you did was move intelligence analysts out into balad, into your base there integrating everything up front. can you talk about that a little bit, the role that technology played? >> yeah. there are several things of technology that changed the fight. one is obvious, it was of predators. it wasn't drone strikes, it was drone surveillance. because you put a surveillance that give cans you full motion video means that anywhere on our force to include the guys on the ground could watch what the predator's watching in full-time video or realtime video. the real effect of that is several. one is where it used to take let's say 120 people to raid a target when only 20 were going inside, it takes 100 to secure it outside to make sure you don't get people reinforcing, what not. if you can do it from the air, you only send 20. now, the other hundred can hit five other targets. so we could hit six
play a limited role in the future. the present generation of nuclear technology is way too expeive. if you run a utility and you decide to build a new nuclear power plant, you go to your engineers or you go to any engineering consulting firm in the world and ask,okay, how much will this cost. they will say to you we really have no idea. >> right. >> then ask you them how long will it take to build it. and they'll say we don't know. >> and those are serious problems if you are trying to build a power plant. and that's really why the industry has declined. to state the issues, even after fushima, can-- it can be managed. >> rose: so it's the cost, not the safety. >> it's the cost and it's the nature of the, of the cost accounting. they're only in a thousand to 1200 megawatts, that means that they used to cause 4 or 500 million, now it's 5, 6, 8 billion dollars. if takes a long time. you don't want to build increments that are that big that take that long. particularly in an age like the '70s after the oil shocks where you don't know what conservation and efficiency and renewables wil
. >> emerging technologies are changing the ways that we get our entertainment, but not for everyone. 40 years since television was transmitted in color, new figures show the 20,000 homes still enjoy their programs in black and white. not so bad, is it? part of our ongoing series of not so obsolete technologies around the world. >> the main issues in europe today -- >> do not adjust your television, do not worry, there is nothing wrong. john thompson just prefers television in black and white. >> it somehow has more importance to it, it seems less trivial as there are more and more channels, to sit down and watch a vintage black-and-white television seems as if you are doing something special. >> john is not alone, 13,000 people in britain are tuning in. >> in britain you must pay a television tax. a black-and-white television like this, you would have a license that would cost $78, as opposed to hundred $30 for color. >> some of these sets in south london date back to 1936. there were only a handful, only the rich could afford them. which is dangerous. >> much of the early televisions did not

company to develop technology that would better detect concussions. joining us now to talk a little little more about it, dr. marti mack carry, professor of public health at john hopkins medical center, and the author of, unaccountable. general electric makes a lot of high-tech medical machines, ct scanners and the like. they would seem to be a natural partner for the league in trying to come up with more information about concussions and how often they happen. >> that's right, jon. they are a sort of likely partner. they also do a lot of research on plastics. part of this contract from the nfl to ge, which is about $50 million, will develop safer, helmets, better technology, better padding, better equipment. the other part will probably develop better scanners. you know ge makes a lot of the cat scanners and mri machines we use here in the hospital. so maybe better imaging can tell us more about the early signs of concussions. jon: some of the players have expressed concerns it is not even the major hits, the major concussion-inducing hits that are the south of what seem to be the problem
that has lots of technology in the southern part of the district. some from microsoft and many other technology companies. by a medical device companies and also a very rich agricultural industry of dairy and berries and specialty crops the immigration is very important for many different aspects. i wanted to start with you. we talked about h-1b but you also talk good a start of the visa program and i wondered if you could elaborate what you think needs to be in such a program and how that would work in conjunction with the program. >> it would do wonders for seattle and new york and even more for silicon valley. there are literally tens of thousands of companies the would be started almost overnight if we gave these entrepreneurs or would-be entrepreneurs the ability to do that. they can start companies you could start a company that you cannot work for it. so we would suddenly have a boom in the entrepreneurship like before. it can be done independently with everything else we are doing. let's get that done. the big companies are lobbying very hard for it. they need it. there are d
. the united states is in the middle of another reinventing right now. technology is changing and giving them that at its edge back. let's start with manufacturing. i will give you a crash course. just like we saw oil doing something we worried about, now you have newspapers writing about saudi america. fracking change our entire perspective of oil. look at competing. five years ago, none of you would ever used a smart phone. practically, all of us do that. we carry in our pockets more computing power than existed the day we were born. it's it's in our pockets waiting for us to check e-mails. the same thing is happening in manufacturing. look at the advances in the robotics, artificial intelligence. china's manufacturing industry will be toast. it will start coming back to america like we never imagined before. we have the debate about health care. health care is advancing like you cannot imagine. between digital medicine, major advances are happening. i am a heart patient. my iphone case is an ekg machine. i can mail that to my cardiologists. the way technology is going, i will not need a ca
the beginning of long unending conversation about drone technology, which is actually much bigger than this extremely serious issue. you know, it's only going to get birg and more complex from here. i think it's fwood that the president is taking these steps to make it a little more transparent now, but i think there will be increasing pressure because we're going to see more use of drones in our own airspace. i mean, not necessarily for targeted killings, you know, but surveillance certainly. we're seeing this start to happen already, and i think when the drones come home, there will be a little bit more public awareness of what this technology means for us and the way that we live. >> in terms of the changing -- i mean, given where the aclu has been on this, which is to say i think skeptical at best, are you -- is it your position that you are disappointed in the tack that the president has taken, visa have i national security, you about also transparency. when he came into office, it was amid promises to close guantanamo. there have been many people that have made that very difficul
arms seller. we're taking the leading edge on the drone technology. we're regularly killing people in countries we're not even at war with. so i guess in this opaque system you talk about the legalities of it. it's about making laws so they can do what they want to do which they were doing any way. that i guess--i don't think that if you can rationalize killing anyone--unarmed kids because they happen to be near people you think are bad guys then i think you can rationalize basic basically killing anybody. >> you mentioned the numbers and we have the numbers for the audience right now. they're very telling. let's look at the first ten days of 2014. this is pakistan alone there were seven deadly strikes. at least 40 people killed. 11 of them may have been civilians. that's just an example of the precise operations happening abroad. >> and we're told that al-qaeda has been destroyed yet there has been 132 they had to kill in 2013. sorry. >> just to give you more numbers. between 2004 and 2013 total u.s. strikes were 362. total reported killed, 2629 to 3461. civilians killed, 475 to 8
. the problem i believe is we've got this technology. we are using it. we are using it more than anybody has ever used it before. i mean i forget how many -- you know, this story broke. i have to go back and look at the research i've done. i've written about this. how many hundreds of people have been killed in pakistan, afghanistan, in somalia with drones. we've got this technology. we're using it. we are killing not just suspected terrorists but civilians. we're not making any effort to round them up to put them on trial. we're just targeting them with drone strikes. we're killing them. and again, there is a lot of collateral damage, some -- at least evidence of 45 civilians including children who have been killed by drones in the last year. reports the new york review of books. we're using this technology but congress has not decided. the white house has not released what are the guidelines. who decides when to use it. what rules do we follow if any? and is this really legal under international law to do it? the justice department now says it is. but the idea that somebody -- and you know

argument for you? >> there are supposedly 70 countries that have some kind of drone technology. but the drone is the instrument of the 21st century when it comes to air power, and that's a reality. the problem comes down to really the morality, and the white house has put out three criteria, including is it an imminent threat? if it were delayed, would it cause greater risk? and is there no other alternative? the problem is those always involve subjective judgments. it's the same thing as firing a gun. it's in the eyes of the person who holds the weapon, and it isn't always a balanced perception, and the truth is that the drones have generated enormous backlash in pakistan particularly, where the united states has used them the most, as well as in yemen, the second highest number of targets. >> dan, robin mentions the morality of it. i hear often from radio listeners who sense a hypocrisy in that they see the obama administration being critical of harsh interrogation methods but going along with the drone program. is there some inherent hypocrisy in that? >> well, there was an

technology. it's a different method of solving a problem. there's no due process at that point. in acts of war, in acts of violence when we proactively or even reactively act against it, this is just more an advanced way of doing it. where is the due process in those other situations? obviously it comes back to the question of andrea as far as the word imminent, but i just see it as a more sophisticated, more technologically advanced way of solving problems. >> you talked about waco. i think it was a horrible mistake by the justice department and the people on the ground to do what they did. i think it was handfisted, and a lot of people died unnecessarily. that said, the government believed at that point that the children inside were in imminent harm. n in imminent danger. i'm not sure how you save the children by burning the place down, but that's the calculation that they made. and that goes back, steve, to the question of imminent. what is imminent? obviously i'd be the first one to say if they have evidence that this guy is planning an attack, kill him. fine with it. but you know w
to this position. first, chuck is acutely aware that even in an age of rapid technological advances, our military capability and effectiveness depend on the quality and the morale of the people who serve our nation in uniform, as well as the families who support them. chuck received two purple hearts in vietnam, and he continued to fight for veterans and active duty military personnel. he knows that our people are the strongest assets. second, chuck's experience in vietnam shape his life in perspective. war for chuck hagel is not an abstraction. i am confident that if confirmed, he will ask the hard and smart questions before sending troops into battle. chuck hagel knows that the united states has vital interests that are worth fighting for and dying for. he also knows that war should be a last resort, and that our nation must effectively use all of our tools, not limited only to our military, to protect our important and to protect our vital interests. certainly, mr. chairman, there is a tension in these values, but it is a tension we should welcome in the thought process and in the advice that
